Built a dynamo wheel, new brakes, Jones bar, new front derailleur, preproduction Ergon grips, Surly Knards.

And pink tape.

Excellent!  I like this one.

I've been thinking about taping my Jones bars in the same place as your pink tape.  Any tips about wrap the intersection?  Did you use two pieces...or one?

One piece per side.  I pretty much started with this: http://blog.jonesbikes.com/wrapping-an-h-bar%C2%AE/  I did go past the intersection one wrap in a figure 8-ish sort of thing.

Thanks for the tip! I learned over the weekend that my hands like that spot on the (left/right) ends of the loop. I might try to take my tape just slightly (a couple of wraps) forward into the front part of the loop also.  So far, so good with this bar.
